Trail Description
About this trail
The northern two loops (relative to parking lot) are pretty easy, though the northernmost one gets very muddy. Southern loops are more technical, with some nice rock gardens down at the south end. Both sides have lots of shallow stream crossings, facilitated by rocks.

From the parking lot, turn right at the first fork to ride the northern loops, and left at the first fork to ride the southern end. I like keeping right at subsequent forks to do the whole set counterclockwise.

Review: awesome trail. not overly challenging. no steep long climbs but really fun turns. theres also a some features like skinnies and log overs. very flowy. theres a short fast rocky section that might be a bit more challenging for some but nothing you would need to walk. also theres a cute "gnome home" thing.

Review: NOX is a well maintained and fun but not overly challenging trail. There is lots of flow. There aren't any long, steep climbs. Some sections on the south end could be considered intermediate with lots of jagged rocks. Overall, NOX is a great time.

Review: It's a nice beginner trail. Not much climbing or tech and only 9 miles. It gets way too crowded if you are there after 9 on a weekend so I usually start by 7. The trail system is way over-managed. The builders have done a great job but now they keep taking out any roots/rocks that may seem the slightest bit challenging. It's only open about 6 months a year so that is pretty lame. I can't for the life of me understand how it is rated so high. I guess it's just a bunch of beginners voting.

Review: the park info site is not in sync with the actual reality of the trail sign on 5-16-2017 at 0815 i checked the park alerts and the park site indeed said trails were open and when getting there they were actually closed now that was a round trip of 2 hours wasted and ruined the timing of my day for additional riding somewhere else ...i will never ever go back to nox as i had another terrible experience there about a year or two ago that i do not want to mention on this site for fear of someone throwing up all over their computer so if lack of accurate info is ok with you and you want to drive a few hours to ride and find out the trails are indeed closed knock yourself out AS FOR ME NEVER NOX AGAIN NNA NNA NNA NNA

Review: Great variety of trails and environments. A few areas have a lot of jagged rocks so be sure to bring an extra tube just in case.

Review: I'm an advanced rider 25 yrs mt biking and would call nox begginer to intermediate. Don't get me wrong I have fun every time I go it's a blast with fun and flowy trails but technical it is not. Deffinantly worth going for a fun fast ride with flow. You will need to do at least to laps to get any real workout. If you looking for technical ridding try penny pack or wisahicon park. Nox is perfect to learn to ride at my wife loves it and so does my dog. It may be a little fast for your dog I would say you average 9.5 to 10 mph on this track. Vs 6 to 7 mph at pennypack and Wisahicon. Deffinatly a fun spot you will smile from ear to ear just don't expect it to be a ball buster technical session

Review: Visited Nockamixon today for the first time. Super nice trail system and very well maintained. Hats of to the trail builders! Smooth, fast and flowy with a handful of obstacles and some nice bermed areas. Trail difficulty is beginner/intermediate (leaning beginner). That said, just add speed and work on your cornering and linking turns. Can't wait to go back!
